History of Yamaha Drums

Although most of the drums were made in Japan, of late most of their drums are getting manufactured in China (it turns out cheaper for most companies)

- The first UK-made Yamaha drums emerged in 1989, starting with the budget Power V series.
- Yamaha today has a huge factory in China, and backed up by their Japanese-based research lab, Yamaha continues to churn out top quality drums to delight drummers all over the world.
